Default JP Summer Wonder Festival 2012 TFs display

It seems that there are toy festivals and conventions in Japan every month...
This one had on display, the second wave of Capsule Microns (Arcee, Bulkhead, Megatron, Dado/turtle), the next two licensed Revoltech figures (Bumblebee, (Jetwing) Optimus DX), a teaser for the next licensed Guttu Kuru figure (Exosuit Daniel & Spike), plus a licensed Super-Deformed Fortress Maximus.

It looks like third parties in Japan know to get licensed if they want to make money off toys replicating Transformers characters/concepts... because there looks to be a growing number now (there were a number of licensed vehicles & models during the TF3 movie as well).
The Exosuit is going to be a popular one if it is done nicely, as there hasn't been an action figure done yet of that well-known concept from the original movie. A PVC figurine was done, but never anything convertible.

The Super-Deformed Fort Max even transforms... in a very simple way.
But doesn't it just look adorable...

Is the SD Fort Max garage kit licensed exclusively for Wonder Fest '12 only, or will it be more widely available (e.g. general retail), and how big is it?
